Alright so when I bought my 30D I didn't know much about lenses. I spent all my time learning about camera bodies and never thought that lenses would have different image quality. I knew there was a difference between a $100 lens and a $2000 lens so don't think I am too stupid.
My question is how much better is the 18-55mm IS than the non-IS version? I have the 18-55 non-IS version and it is a nice lens, I only use it to shoot at the 18mm end. I am just thinking in terms of budget. I seem to like wide angle lenses a lot more then the telephoto ones. I was looking at getting the 17-55 or maybe 16-35 but why? if the 18-mm IS is pretty good right?
Thanks for any thoughts or input!
(I know the IQ of the 17-55 and 16-35 are going to be better than the 18-55)
